I am looking for information about my g-g-g-grandfather, Vanrensselaer Merritt, who was born in Yates County, New York in 1819. He moved to Johnson County, Kansas around 1860, and owned a farm close to Olathe. I don't know when he died, but was hoping someone would be able to enlighten me. He was on the 1870 and 1880 censuses, but not on the 1900 census. So I imagine he died between 1880 and 1900.
